If it is asked to use a font it doesn't have, OO tries to pick a font
that is as similar as possible.

The substitute often has slight (and sometimes not so slight) size,
spacing and positioning differences, so it's quite common to suddenly
get different word wrap, hyphenation points, page breaks and so on. For
it to really look the same, you need to use the exact same font.

At least, that's been my experience.
